While much of the weekend was dominated by spectacular violence and Uriah Hall turning life into his own personal Tekken game, big things did happen on the other end of the spectrum. Yes, I’m talking about the birth of a child – or, in the case of Bellator featherweight champ Patricio “Pitbull” Freire, the birth of a pup.

Below is the pic Pitbull posted to Instagram.  I know nothing of Brazilian neonatal care, but everyone seems happy and healthy. And I’m very thankful that the photo was taken on the top side of the C-section curtain, because things probably look pretty gnarly on the bottom half.

On this dawn I dreamed I was conducting my son to some sort of duel! It wasn’t nowadays, the image I remember is that it was on the times of long past. I was giving him words of encouragement and motivating him when suddenly I woke up and my wife @teresasilvafreire was having contractions. Well, Davi has been born and full of health! May God bless you and that we may be able to create and raise a good man. Live, conquer, seek for the best that this life has to offer. Respect the elderly and grow up with honor. We love you, my son. Nessa madrugada eu sonhando, conduzia meu filho para algum tipo de duelo! Não era nos tempos de hoje, a imagem que eu recordo é que era nos tempos antigos, eu dizendo algumas palavras de incentivo e motivando-o quando de repente acordei com minha esposa @teresasilvafreire sentindo contrações… Pois bem, Davi nasceu e cheio de saúde. Que Deus te abençoe e que nós possamos criar e formar um homem de bem; viva, conquiste, busque o melhor que essa vida tem pra nos dar; respeite os mais velhos e cresça com honra, te amamos,meu filho.
